His mother and father, Renate and Eduard Flammer are both German and immigrated in the late 60's to South Africa from Frankfurt and Tubingen which was then known as the former West Germany. His home language was German while his second and third languages were English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. Originally Marco's education and vocation was as a civil engineering as a result of his father wishes to have one son to succeed him in the family construction business.

He completed his Dutch bachelor's degree in 2003 in International Civil Engineering Project Management and returned to South Africa to work as a civil engineer in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Secunda and the Eastern Cape while completing a second bachelor's degree part time in Transportation in 2006. During 2004 and 2006 he also completed a Diploma and started a Degree in Theology with the emphasis on Christian Counselling with the aim to better understand the emotional needs and psychology of other individuals. Marco was determined to work within the arts since a very young age as a result of the influence and inspiration his mother had on him (his mom a gifted artist and teacher). During his childhood his involvement in art was through the media of painting, photography, literature and performing arts in and outside of school hours. He originally dreamed of becoming a graphic designer and fine painting artist to express his creative gift on canvas but never found the time with his demanding career and studies. Soon after the completion of his decorous education in science in 2006 he decided to move to London in March of 2007 in the aim of developing his creative aptitude. At first the grapple to survive and remain in London anchored him firmly to his existing civil engineering vocation and science until he finally reached solidity which allowed him freedom to explore a part time career in acting and photography as a model. His first mini-role was in 2010 when he was cast as a double for Albert Ball (Vincent Regan) in the British film St Georges Day.
